New York Times Article

A couple photos of me ended up in an article about TechShop that came out in the New York Times on April 9, 2010. I was doing work on one of the mills trying to make one of the pieces of a test rig I've been designing and fabricating these past couple weeks. It really wasn't very interesting work (I was just counter-boring some holes), but I guess the NYT editors felt there needed a little female representation or something in the photo spread.

The Summer Palace

Chris and I got Victoria a new cage and it's huge! I put up some info about it on the Hamster Across America blog.

New Poster

School has been keeping me super busy, but this week while watching lecture I managed to find the time to put together a very basic infographic poster about the solar system. I wanted to get away from the biology-based stuff I've been doing to add some variety to products, and I've been telling my boyfriend that everything is better in space as an argument for why playing Mass Effect 2 is more awesome than Dragon Age, so I decided to make a simple graphic about the planets of the solar system. No Pluto here, although the reason for it was less political statement and more, "Pluto looks like dust on my screen next to the size of the other planets" when drawn to scale. So pragmatism was the real reason for leaving it out.

Full product is here.

Hawaii pictures

Wow it's been a while since I posted. School has been taking up huge amounts of my time, but I finally managed to sort the photos I took in Hawaii. I spent most of my time on boats and under the water so unfortunately I only have pics from hiking in Volcano National Park. The album is here:
